# Motion Calculation Challenge

## What is the displacement of an object that takes 29.5 minutes to walk with an average velocity of 1.2 m/s to the north?

Is the displacement of the object equal to the distance it traveled?

## Displacement Calculation:

The displacement is not equal to the distance traveled. To calculate displacement, we need to multiply the velocity by the total time of travel. In this case, the object moves with a velocity of 1.2 m/s for 29.5 minutes to the north.

To find the displacement, we first need to convert the time from minutes to seconds. Since there are 60 seconds in a minute, we multiply 29.5 minutes by 60 to get 1770 seconds. Now, we can multiply the velocity of 1.2 m/s by the total time of 1770 seconds to find the displacement.

Displacement = Velocity x Time

Displacement = 1.2 m/s x 1770 s

Displacement = 2124 meters

Therefore, the displacement of the object traveling at an average velocity of 1.2 m/s to the north for 29.5 minutes is 2124 meters.
